Nutrition To Keep Healthy And Hydrate In Ramadan
During Ramadan, it is good to include fresh fruits & vegetables in the form of fruits & salad at Iftar to get ample amounts of vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K, as well as many minerals such as magnesium, potassium, calcium Selenium, zinc etc
Selenium & zinc are mainly found in meat and seafood, so enrich Iftar with a delicious shrimp dish from time to time.
It is essential to drink plenty of water to prevent body and skin from dehydration, especially during Ramadan. Water staves off dehydration. Thus, it is important to replenish the body by drinking water and consuming beverages and foods that contain water. Water also helps preserve skin’s elasticity and protects against the early appearance of wrinkles. Drink as much as water between Iftar and Saher.
